Lightweight external batteries for laptops

American Power Conversion (APC) : 13 September, 2007  (New Product)
APC notebook batteries add significant run-time without external mains without significantly adding to weight or profile
American Power Conversion announced two additions to its award-winning line of mobile accessories, the APC Universal Notebook Battery 50 and 70 designed to enhance the availability of power for mobile solutions. Lightweight and portable, APC's Universal Notebook Batteries are the only external notebook batteries designed to operate in a notebook case or beneath a laptop computer, giving mobile users more runtime for their computers while traveling.

"APC is pleased to continue offering mobile users more ways to power critical electronic devices, such as notebook computers," said Joe Loberti, APC's vice president of Home and Distributed Systems. "With the introduction of the Universal Notebook Battery 50 and 70 APC provides consumers with power options that allow them to remain available and productive while traveling."

These new models feature the following capabilities:.

* Universal Notebook Battery 50 - is an external power supply that provides up to four hours of additional runtime depending on the notebook model and its performance settings. Weighing just under a pound, the Universal Notebook Battery 50 fits easily in a notebook case or next to the computer in tight spaces, such as on an airplane tray table. Currently available in Europe, the Universal Notebook Battery 50 carries an estimated resale price of £79.99 (UPB50).

* Universal Notebook Battery 70 - is a slim external battery designed to fit easily under a notebook computer and provide up to six hours of additional runtime depending on the notebook model and its performance settings. An integrated USB port supplies a 5V power source for USB-powered mobile devices using the manufacturer cables; however, APC recommends the use of APC's USB Charging Cables (sold separately) to ensure compatibility. Currently available in Europe, the Universal Notebook Battery 70 carries an estimated resale price of £124.99 (UPB70).

Easy to set up and use, APC's Universal Notebook Batteries are compatible with most leading brands of notebook computers, include a variety of 'notebook tips' and allow users to select the required voltage. An Input/Output power port provides a simple way to charge and power the Universal Notebook Batteries using an APC Universal Power Adapter or the original OEM notebook power adapter. APC's Universal Notebook Battery 70 use lithium polymer battery cells, an advanced battery technology with a high power density, to create a compact, lightweight, solution with high power output. They are ideal for long business trips or charging the battery of a notebook when AC power is not available.

In addition to stand-alone use, the Universal Notebook Batteries work with APC's entire family of Power Ready Notebook Cases, which have special pockets to hold mobile devices and offer cable routing to neatly hide charging cables. APC's Power Ready Notebook Cases help individuals keep all of their mobile devices charged, organised and easily accessible while on the go.
